A security application installed on the remote host is affected by an
authentication bypass vulnerability.
The version of McAfee Host Intrusion Prevention Services (HIPS) is
prior to 18.104.22.16828. It is, therefore, affected by an authentication
bypass vulnerability due to improper registry key permissions. A local
attacker can exploit this, under certain conditions, to manipulate the
product's registry keys.
